Managers 'don't mind' if workers turn up late
UK managers are not concerned if their staff turn up late for work, according to a new poll which indicates bosses are adopting a more relaxed attitude to the implementation of workplace rules and regulations.
The study, which was carried out by Mozy.co.uk and seen by Digital Hub, shows that three in four of the 1,000 bosses questioned admitted they have a relaxed attitude to time-keeping, as they know many employees start their working day long before they step foot in the workplace.
In addition, a quarter of mangers are happy for workers to take longer lunches, while more than a third do not mind everyone enjoying office banter and regular tea breaks.
One in ten bosses polled said that they are happy for their workers to carry out personal tasks at work such as online banking, shopping and even paying bills while at their desks.
Flexibility is also being embraced, it appears, with the average manager having no problem with staff working from home one or two days a week.
Claire Galbois-Alcaix, a spokeswoman for Mozy.co.uk, said the results are good news for workers everywhere.
She added: "Hard work isn't going unnoticed and mobile working and technology is having more of an impact on employer attitudes than people think. Bosses have come to understand that a bit of give and take encourages a loyal and trusted workforce."
